    Somehow I missed this page of yours. It’s so fun to see what you’ve been reading. How did you like Gone Girl?

      I flew through Gone Girl in a much-needed day off in the final weeks of finishing my dissertation. I loved the energy of the story but ultimately was annoyed with the ending because it didn’t feel realistic somehow…but thinking back on it, I am less annoyed about that. How did you like it?
